Continuing Education

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is very broad and deep.   Being a serious practitioner involves a life of study and clinical development. Basic schooling is just the very first step on a long and fruitful path. I take this matter seriously. When seeking a practitioner, you should not just be concerned with their basic training and credentials but even more so with clear evidence of a lifelong commitment to development.  Healing is an ongoing journey for all of us.

Fundamentally, in Chinese Medicine, illness and standing still are one and the same thing.  There is even a Qing Dynasty book published in 1897 by Shao Tongzhen entitled “Medicine and Changes are One Principle”.  If you really want to go somewhere, it’s best to get on board with someone who is also going somewhere.  Below is a list of training and development I have pursued since graduating from school and entering clinical practice.
